The Japanese-based carmaker Toyota is on a full swing with its newest models launched for the US market. Alongside the new Yaris L three-door hatchback or the top of the line Land Cruiser, the company has also brought into attention the new lineup from Corolla, also arriving in the US in a couple of months.
Two models were announced for the local market, the 2019 Corrola Hatchback as well as the Sedan, each variant coming with its own level trims.
The official replacer of the Corrola iM is the gorgeous Corolla Hatchback set at a MSRP of $19,990 in the entry-level SE, the variant coming with a standard six-speed manual. On the other hand, the SE with continuously-variable automatic transmission is priced at $21,090. Eventually, the top of the line XSE with six-speed manual costs $22,990, while the automatic transmission comes with a $24,090 price tag.
Among the hatchback`s most important details we should mention the Toyota Safety Sense 2.0, Entune 3.0 system with CarPLay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, as well as revised-sport tuned suspension system.
Visually, the new Hatchback features LED headlights and taillights, chrome rear diffuser, or a choice of 16- to 18-inch alloy wheels – all available in the SE and XSE trim levels. However, the XSE can be equipped with LED fog lights, chrome front grille surround, 18-inch alloy wheels, Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) and so on.
The safety systems include Pre-Collision with Pedestrian Detection, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Automatic High Beam, Lane Tracing Assist and Road Sign Assist.
In the engine department, the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback features a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine, replacing the older 1.8-liter four mil, and paired to a six-speed manual or an all-new Dynamic-Shift CVT with Sport Model and paddle shifters.
Joining the hatchback in the US is its sedan sibling, with lower prices and no less than five trim levels – L, LE, XLE, SE and XSE. The cheapest version costs $18,700, while the topper XSE variant is set at $22,880.
